Can't remove mute selection

When I make a call, a screen comes up with the mute selection hi lighted. I can't find anyway to unselect it and I didn't purposely select it. At one point my cellphone indicated that it was connected to my Motorola handsfree earpiece so I thought that might have something to do with it but even if I deactivate my bluetooth function the problem remains the same.

Can you help? I have only had the phone for about three weeks and don't know it well at all yet.

thanks for your help

Set it on fire, or have it replaced, the company will have a warranty so I think the bonfire may be a good idea to hold off on, even tho with the irritation I would love to burn one just once. I had this happen but more embarassing than that, I was in the airport and the speaker phone turned on as well, so I was unable to tell my friend anything I had to hang up on them and txt them as the phone continued to do this till it was replaced

When i try to connect to my wireless network it ask for device ownership password. What does that mean

Hi britnatale,
If you go to Control Panel, select "Remove/Change" on the Intel wireless, then select "Modify" and "Next" you'll then have access to the installed settings. From here, uninstall/unselect "Single Sing On" and WiFi Protection. These will turn off the prompt.

Hope it works for you.

My volume or sound is not working.i cant hear any sound from my music.

Make sure the speaker icon in the bottom left window is not showing a red slash across it. This means it could be muted. RIght click on it and unselect the mute field.

Alternatively the audio driver may need to be re-installed. Go to control panel and select Sound and Audio devices. Select the update audio driver function. I don't know what brand and model of PC you are using so cannot advise which driver might be suitable.

No sound for directions recently. MUTE is NOT

The reason for this problem is likely that the voice has become unselected or corrupted.
  • Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol on the screen with WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  • Press SETTINGS (the spanner symbol) or LOCALE on models that don't have a settings icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
On this screen you'll see 3 items VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press VOICE and select a different voice but be sure it's an English speaking one or the language will change.

This should solve the problem.
To replace a corrupted voice file
It will search for software updates to your satnav and when they are installed it will give you the option to download extras including voice files. Select the ones you want and click download. They will be installed to your satnav.

When you have disconnected the satnav from your computer you can select one of the new voices as described in the first paragraph above.

I have a nuvi 760 and lost the voice instructions

First check that the sound has not been muted. Pres the volume symbol and see if the mute box is ticked. If not either the voice has become unselected or the voice file has become corrupted. Press, Tools, Settings, Language. The selected voice should be displayed. Press voice and select another. If there's not another voice or if the voice file is corrupted you can download it again. First download webupdater from and install it. Connect the satnav to your computer and using webupdater it will search for updates. When it's finished it will give you the option to select voice files by clicking on them. Select the ones you want and press next. When the files are downloaded and the satnav is disconnected from the computer you can select the voice you want as described above.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 750 gps. Purchased online on Amazone in 2008 for my 81 year old dad. He loves it. But he just told me tonight the woman's voice has not been working for a long long time. Device beeps...

1. Check that the volume has not been muted by touching the speaker symbol on the main screen. If mute is ticked touch it to unselect it.

2. If this is not the problem on the main screen touch tools, then settings, then language and select a voice. If you didn't download extra voices there's probably only one there.

3. If that doesn't solve the problem the voice file may be corrupted and need to be downloaded again. Connect your Satnav to the pc. Go to and download the latest version of webupdater. After the software is updated click next, Tick the voices you want to select them, Tick next and then Finish. This will download the voices selected to your Satnav. You will have to repeat para 2 above to select the voice you want. You can experiment and try out different voices to see which you prefer.

Upgraded the memory but runs really slow

hi, Okay so you was expecting it to go faster, well that depends on a number of factors, remember if the system runs out of ram, it will start using virtual memory so it will swap a page of memory out to the harddisk so it can use that page of memory for a program etc hence that's why it slower, ok , but if the system has the right amount of memory when running a application you will not notice a speedup, your problem could be caused by spyware or infected files trying to access the internet etc hence a general slowdown, also look at the programs that are running , it could simply be that you got too many applications running in the background , so a faster processor is required, I suggest you look at what's getting loaded when your laptop starts up,

The best way to do that is goto the CMD shell and type msconfig,

now goto the startup tab and look at what's starting up here,

be carefull that you do not unselect something your system required to function correctly,

Not sure what the file does , look it up on the net, get a balance view of the the file if it sounds bad unselect and reboot, if the systems displays a error or somehing no longer works , go back into the program and select the previous applicaiton that you unselected.

Another thing you can do is , start up in safe mode by pressing the f8 key after the bios screen disappears, press it couple of times and a display should appear , now select safe mode,

Once windows has loaded , does it seem faster then I suggest you looked at what hasn't loaded, it may be a driver making it slow ?? Do a virus scan and spyware check now.

Anyway I hope that helps.
